He claims that everything is prepared for the President to officially open the new, top-notch facility, which will be the latest completed and inaugurated facility.
The new Offices of the National Security Advisor (ONSA) and National Counterterrorism Center were earlier inaugurated by President Buhari on March 21. (NCTC).
The two cutting-edge facilities are intended to maximise efforts at addressing the country’s evolving security concerns, particularly terrorism and violent extremism.
Speaking at the facilities’ official opening, the president said they would leave a significant legacy by giving the future government the tools they need to successfully coordinate counterterrorism and national security initiatives.
He also took the opportunity to highlight important national security accomplishments his government has accomplished.
These, according to him, include gains in combating terrorism, armed banditry, kidnapping, separatist tendencies, crude oil theft, piracy as well as militancy in the South-South and cyber-security.
Buhari also hosted the outgoing United States Ambassador, Mary Beth Leonard, at the State House in Abuja, on Tuesday.
At the meeting, the president said he was completely satisfied with Leonard’s role in the election process, staying above it without meddlesomeness or any form of interference.
The Nigerian leader also expressed satisfaction with remarkable passion toward democracy exhibited by Nigerians through the choices they made in the Presidential, National Assembly and the subsequent Governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections.
